PDR to exhibit at SMTA International, scheduled to take place October 16-17, 2018 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The company will have the IR-C3 Chipmate entry-level SMD/BGA rework station and IR-E3 evolution series SMD/BGA IR rework station in booth #527.
With current market conditions there is a need for lower cost and upgradeable equipment without a loss in soldering quality. The PDR IR-C3 Chipmate SMT/BGA rework station, using the company’s patented focused IR technology, has been specifically engineered to meet this challenge.
The IR-C3 Chipmate comes with a range of standard features allowing the operator to quickly, safely rework all types of components. The station is tool free, gas free, instantly/precisely controllable, clean, modular and produces 100% yield BGA rework without any complications.
The PDR IR- E3G has been the company’s top selling station for many years, a clear preferred choice of customers worldwide. The versatile system is ideal for a very wide range of SMD/BGA/uBGA/CSP/LED applications on small-large sized PCBs. The PDR IR-E3 systems are available in three models – IR-E3S standard, IR-E3G Gold and IR-E3M micro component/PCB rework system – each conﬁgured perfectly for their respective roles.
PDR’s IR-E3 series of SMD/BGA IR rework systems are engineered to cope with the challenges of repairing today’s PCB assemblies. The systems use PDR’s patented Focused IR technology, the world’s only technology that uses dual-band visible ir heating: the light that heats.
The stations are nozzle free, gas free, clean, simple and easy-to-use. Each model is designed for precise control to produce 100 percent yield of your SMD/BGA rework without complications. The keys are accurate closed-loop thermal feedback and intuitive easy-to-use software. The IR-E3 series provides extremely high levels of proﬁling and process control necessary for the eﬀective rework of the most advanced packages, including SMDs, BGAs, CSPs, QFNs, LEDs, Flip-chips, 0201-01005s and all lead-free applications.
